Members of the Davidson Football family at the Community Solidarity March for Black Lives Matter in June.

 

On Friday, led by members of Davidson Football, hundreds of Wildcats gathered to commemorate the 57th anniversary of the March on Washington.

That action came after the team announced “Davidson Football P.A.C.E – Progress, Advocate, Cooperate, and Educate” and released the following statement:

In response to the racial tension, social unrest, and prevalence of systemic racism in our country; our football program has spent the last few months meeting, discussing, and making decisions on how we can create change and generational impact. Our mission is to lead our football team, campus, community, and country in promoting Equality, Unity, and Opportunity. Today we announce the start of P.A.C.E.  Progress – Advocate – Cooperate – Educate. This organization is the vehicle we will use in our fight for a better future.

Let’s go to work!

“Set the P.A.C.E.”

The college shared a few of the powerful photos from Friday’s (socially distant) gathering.
